I spent a frustrating hour trying to work my way through the murky path towards attaining a bigger file. Not surprisingly, there was a price on it. Now, mind you, I am not adverse to paying for a service. But PUHLEEZE, Google, let's shed a little light on it, shall we? When I went into Picasa Web, the holder of all things blogger photographs, I found that there were at least ten copies of many of my pics in there. And I did not post them ten times. This means - to me - that they are artificially padding the album to make sure you run out of space sooner than later. That, quite frankly, stinks. They tout Picasa Web as "free" photo sharing on Google. I think that is misleading. "Free", in this case, is relative.
You can go into your album on Picasa Web and delete photos. A disclaimer pops up, telling you that it make take 24 hours to delete it from your album. I would assume that, if you deleted all the false duplicates, you would have a lot more room "free".
